Can I Add A New Spouse Or Dependent To My COBRA Coverage?

Is it possible to add a new spouse or dependent to my COBRA coverage?

Yes. A qualified insurance beneficiary has the same rights to add newly acquired dependents on the group health plan, just like if they were employed. If you get married, you may add COBRA coverage for the new spouse, if active employees on the same employer-sponsored insurance can do the same. Check with the plan administrator for time details. Family members may also be added or deleted during the open enrollment period.

Affordable Temporary Health Insurance

If you are fairly healthy and still want to remain insured, alternatives to COBRA insurance may be available based on where you live. Short-term health insurance is a popular option and available in most states. This can protect you from high medical costs of new injuries or new illnesses that unexpectedly occur while allowing you to use any licensed doctor. Coverage is available up to $1 million per person.
